RiRi’s performance at the Grammys was highly anticipated, after the launch of her new release Anti. She was set to sing new track Kiss It Better for the 58th annual ceremony.

So, where exactly was our favourite Bad Gal? 

Billboard have confirmed that the 27-year-old was forced to pull out due to health reasons. 

A representative for Rihanna explained that she’s been put on vocal rest for 48 hours, explaining that she ‘was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal cords.’


According to the statement, the chart topper had been taking antibiotics for three days, but they ‘did not kill the infection adequately.’
